It is going to be a “banner year” for Hollywood & Highland Center with the stellar celebration of the 10th Annual Wine & Jazz Summer Concert Series. Held on Tuesday evenings, June 4 – August 6 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the heart of Hollywood, top jazz musicians will be in concert performing the most entertaining, danceable and seductive songs. The concerts will take place in Central Courtyard located on the 2nd level in the Center.
Sponsored by kjazz 88.1 FM radio station, the Summer Concert Series continues to attract more jazz music lovers each season. The concerts are FREE. Wine tasting (consisting of an assorted sampler filled with cheeses, fruits and breads prepared by Wolfgang Puck Catering) costs $10. All proceeds from the wine bar will directly benefit Project Angel Food (www.angelfood.org), the Los Angeles County-based non-profit organization that provides meals to people struggling with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
To date, Hollywood & Highland Center’s popular summer jazz music extravaganza raised over $250,000 for the charity. Over the past decade, the Wine & Jazz Summer Concert Series continues to grow every year. Last summer’s series attracted more than 15,000 people throughout its seasonal tenure.
